My heart is heavy and my soul has been sorely damaged with all of the things that have happened in the last few weeks. So many things and so many people have been lost – for what reason? Elune has taught me that there are few things that I can do to learn that lesson, however, how many times does Azeroth have to deal with this type of conflict – for what reason?
We have fought demons and we’ve fought the scourge and we’ve fought each other for all time, or so it appears to me. I met my beloved Sindorei in the middle of a conflict with the Horde and he saved my life. Oh yes, I hated him at first and once I knew him, I knew that he was no different that I am on the inside. We were supposed to be enemies and we were supposed to kill one another according to the Leaders and Warchief of the time, however, Elune had other plans for us because we fell in love.
The place that my people called home is no more, burned with the people that were still there. Civilians and soldiers a like – babes in arms, ancients living in their winter of their of lives. Anyone and anything that was not fast enough to make it out of the portals and to safety were lost. It didn’t matter that some of those people had never taken up arms in their lives and had only existed to live their lives in peace and harmony in the World Tree. Now, they are gone, burned to ash.
I couldn’t believe what was happening because it all felt like a horrific nightmare that I only wanted to awake from. No matter how hard I tried to wake up – it was no dream and those visions are burnt forever into my mind.
I know this war is about the azurite and the possibility of what it might do and to save our world, however, no one would have thought that the Banshee Queen would have thought immediately to turn it into a thing of mass destruction. We have lost cities before in the past – Theramore does come to mind and the loss of life there was unbelievable. No one was prepared, just as we weren’t prepared for the Cataclysm and losses for my people with Deathwing. So many lives lost just so that we could start it all over again. Where are the Gods that we have worshipped and bowed to for all of these centuries – can they not control their children any better than we can control ours?
I know that my beloved was there on Dark Shore and I know that he killed just as I did, however, I know that his heart had to be breaking as sorely as mine was. Some of these people were friends and, yes, even family. We were ordered as soldiers to do these things and we did them. That doesn’t mean that we felt it was right – there was no honor in what either faction did and I know that it is only the beginning.
My family is safe because a certain Sindorei told me to get them to safety weeks before anything happened. Bless Elune that he was willing to risk his life to let me know what he had heard in the war councils – he feels as I do, family comes first.
